hi ladies - i'm 32 weeks along and i've been coming across more & more information in books about women having bladder-control issues after they've had babies. has this happened to anybody after having had kids? thanks!

 

I do - September 20

Ohh yes it happend to me after my first, and to make it worse I did not bother to do my pelvic execises to help fix the problem untill a few years afterward, thank goodness it helped the problem, but I have had to wear pads on and off since then just in case I have to hang on for too long because I leak a bit.My bladder does not hold as much as it should. I have been doing the exersizes during pregnancy , I am so worried that this time it will be worse. I have read that there are ways of trainning the bladder after pregancy so I will see my doctor about it after my baby is born. I recomend you do kegels to prevent the problem getting as bad as mine, I have heard that some women get it worse than I did.

I must be one of the lucky ones. I never had any issues with bladder. But I did do my kegals as a religion.
